Lynn Sherr, the award-winning correspondent for ABC TV's 20/20 news magazine, hosts this very special episode of NATURE. Based on Sherr's book, Tall Blondes, this personal odyssey takes a surprising and revealing look at the magnificent giraffe. These elegant, graceful, and gentle giants really stand out in a crowd with their immense size and playful personalities.
Sherr visits a giraffe sanctuary in Kenya, attends the birth of a giraffe at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, and recalls the poignant story of Victor, an injured giraffe at an English zoo whose plight captured the world's hearts. Thrill to exciting footage of a giraffe roundup, and eavesdrop as supposedly silent giraffes communicate with each other. As Sherr tells viewers, "You don't have to be tall or blonde to fall in love with these wonderful animals."
